The first five trailers for upcoming sci-fi flick Ghost in the Shell have dropped and they look pretty incredible. Based on the famous Japanese manga and anime franchise, Ghost in the Shell follow the adventures of Major, a cyborg special-ops officer played by Scarlett Johansson. The choice of Johansson caused controversy earlier this year amid accusations of whitewashing. Now that the trailers have dropped, the rumour that Johansson's features had been ethnicised does not appear to be true.

Dressed in a cropped black wig, in one trailer Johansson can be seen eerily removing wires from the back of her neck, while in another she's caressing i-D cover star Adwoa Aboah's face as the model asks her hauntingly, "What are you?".

Ominous and thrilling, get ready for your new favourite ghost story.
